Which William?


Active member
Charleston, South Carolina, US
William CLARKE married Mary HANCOCK 15 Sep, 1800 in All Saint's at FULBOURN Cambs UK. (From the Parish Register). Both were shown 'otp', so William must have already been in Fulbourn for a while.

William was buried Jun 23 1834 at Fulbourn - "aged 57", so +/- 1777 is his birth year.

I do not know the names of parents, or where William was born.

I am trying to find William's baptism/birth year, parents, and location.

Below are the only two "locals" which seem to be close to the name/timeframe that I can find..

Does anyone have information on either of these two Williams below, please?
I can't see marriage or burials. With a name like Docwra, ??, I thought it would be easy enough.
